Summary: This game is undeniably one for Jessie Ventura. Making your way through combat torn land and wind up fighting government experiments gone wild. You have to keep on your toes or lose them in this game. All I can say is if you like first person shooters, you're gonna love this.
Summary: Its a pretty fun 1st person shooter with a good adventure feel to it. The game does have some minor programing glitches every now and then, such as an occasional drag during heavy combat and the controls are not as accurate as Call of Duty modern warfare, but for under $20 bucks the game is worth it. The seller sent the game to me relatively quick and it was in the same condition as advertised.
Summary: I picked this game up at a "going out of business sale" (all too common these days). I bought it based on the subject matter (aliens and Area 51) and less on actual facts or reviews. First off, this is actually a really fun game. Short, about 4-6 hours. I think that is the first thing that truly surprised me. Is it original (from a FPS point of view), no. The shooting is basic, the targeting isn't always "spot on" (i.e.

Summary: I'll admit, after playing through the first game my expectations for this follow-up was far less. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised when I found myself having a lot of fun playing through this game. Granted they're not bringing anything new to the table, but sometimes sticking to the tried and true methods works fine. In this case it did, while it's not original, I still found this game quite fun.
Summary: I picked this up along with Army of Two at the same time for a combined price [..] which was to hard to pass up (both new). I wasn't expecting much because the reviews were averaging around 7 of 10. I can break it down like this.. Graphic/Visuals - Better than thought. Uses the Unreal Engine and came away surprised. Granted not COD4 or GOW2 but still good looking Storyline - Again not bad and pretty decent.
Summary: I found this game for my Xbox 360 used for $20 so I thought I'd give it a try. The first two maps are boring and uninviting. I almost put the game away after this but thought I'd hang in there until the real action starts. GRAPHICS: A- The maps are well-crafted and detailed; it's one of the things I like most about the game. Glitches aside, the aesthetics of the maps and alien-like creatures are excellent.
Conclusion: So I asked myself, "With GoW2 being one of the top competitors out there for first person shooters why should I be interested?" Well... it's Gear of freaking War. I enjoyed slaughtering the Locust in campaign and other in multiplayer on the first why should this be any different. So I, like many others, pre-ordered this game. The day came for me to pick up my copy, and take it home for the next slaughter of Locust.
Underrated and overlooked fun that's worth every penny (discounted, that is)...

Summary: 3.5 Stars As other reviews have indicated, "Blacksite: Area 51" is not the masterpiece it had the potential to be; however, it is hardly the bane of the 360's existence, either. It has a great many things working in its favor, and ultimately, they outweigh the negatives and justify the title's purchase (or rental, if you can't find a used copy cheap enough).
Conclusion: Ok, so this is my first ever review of a game period! I only felt compelled to do this review because I personally consider myself one of the BIGGEST Gears of War fans which I know is saying alot! Hell I damn near lost my marriage because of Gears! If that ain't a fan then I don't know what is. I'll have to admit my review is going to be solely based on Multi-Player, WHY? because I know like so many of you that's why I bought this game.
Summary: I was excited about this game after playing the demo, but the mixed reviews made me hold off. However, when Amazon had a sale on this game, I went ahead and purchased. I've played about 2 hours into the campaign and I'm enjoying the ride. The controls work well and there has been variety in game play (on foot, driving, turrets) so far. The story and voice acting are also good. This is not Halo 3, Gears of War or Call of Duty 4...
